NFL investigating Peyton Manning over offseason visit

The NFL have confirmed that they are reviewing a meeting which supposedly took place between Denver Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning, offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase and Alabama head coach, Nick Saban this offseason.

NFL rules forbid NFL coaches from holding meetings with players during specific parts of the league calendar in order to ensure some period of rest.

Manning and Gase have said that they were both meeting with Saban independently and were unaware that the other would also be present.

However, the league is ensuring that there was no foul-play with NFL spokesman Greg Aiello saying: "It is pending. It is being reviewed."

The NFL's persistence on the issue shows that they are not going to dismiss the incident as purely a coincidence, however it would seem unlikely that one of the league's most experienced and storied player would go out to intentionally break a rule.

The Broncos will obviously be looking for an advantage in 2014 after losing the Super Bowl in spectacular fashion. But does that mean they are willing to break rules?
